On the other hand, Shelcal M is a comprehensive supplement that combines calcium and vitamin D3 with magnesium, zinc and manganese.

Q: Are there any side effects of taking Shelcal HD tablet?

A: You may experience constipation, nausea, vomiting and stomach upset after taking this supplement, though not everyone gets these side effects.

Q: What are the sources of vitamin D?

A: Very few food items such as cod liver oil, cheese, egg yolk, etc., are good sources of vitamin D. Vitamin D is produced in our skin when we are exposed to the sun. Sun exposure from 10 am to 3 pm at least twice a week for 10-30 minutes can help prevent vitamin deficiency.

A: No, Shelcal HD tablet is not chewable. It should be swallowed with a sufficient amount of water.

Q: Why should one take vitamin D?

A: With the current lifestyle, we are all based indoors in air-conditioned offices, houses and cars, with hardly any exposure to the sun. This is leading to increased vitamin D deficiency in all age groups and more fractures and muscle weakness. There is a lot of research happening which suggests that vitamin D may have a role in preventing the onset of diabetes, cancers like colon and breast and help build immunity.
